Maddelacheruvu Suri, the role played by Surya in Rakta
Charitra, was killed yesterday by his close associate. He was
attacked near Sanath Nagar, while he was going to Jubilee Hills in
Hyderabad. Soon after that he was rushed to Apollo Hospital, where
he breathed his last.
According to reports, Suri's close aide Bhanu allegedly shot him
two bullets. One on his chest and other on stomach. Cops have
suspected that the differences over political and land deals could
be the reasons behind the murder. The incident has shocked Andhra
Pradesh and Ananthpur district is on high alert.
Suri had recently seen Rakta Charitra 2 (RC) in
Bengaluru. He had also praised Surya' performance in the film.
RC is a biopic of Paritala Ravindra, a factionist and
political leader from Andhra Pradesh, who was assassinated by
Suri's men in 2005.
